Hanna-Barbera For Adults
19 April 2003 | by broadfootSee all my reviews

For some reason, I loved this show from the first episode I saw. It is so interesting to see how many old Hanna-Barbera characters are getting in trouble with the law, and they need Harvey Birdman to bail them out! I remember one episode where Shaggy and Scooby-Doo get arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana and Birdman represents them. Of course, Birdman and his clients win in the end. Scrappy-Doo then makes a brief appearance at the end, but is then lifted up and carried away by Birdman's falcon sidekick. I thought "Goodbye Scrappy...and good riddance!"

To close off, here's a message to the show's creators. How about some new episodes?
